Newcastle United injury update before Fulham clash

Newcastle vs Fulham

Newcastle host 20th place Fulham in one of Saturday’s 3 pm kickoffs.

Newcastle head into the game in 14th place and four points above the relegation zone.

Rafa Benitez’s side also picked up a win in their last match as they went to Huddersfield and came away with a 1-0 win.

As for Fulham, they are still 20th in the Premier League with just nine points from 17 games.

Fulham are also still going in search of that first clean sheet of the season.

Fulham have shown signs of improvement under Claudio Ranieri. But the former Leicester boss has still yet to solve Fulham’s defensive woes.

In 17 league games this season, Fulham have let in an astonishing 42 goals, the worst defensive record in the Premier League buy some way.
